Two men were stabbed– including a 73-year old– while on the 7 train in Woodside Sunday morning.

The victims were sitting on a Manhattan-bound train– between 61st Street and 52nd Street– at around 7:25 a.m. when a man pulled out a pocket knife and started shouting at the first victim.

“Why aren’t you home with your wife and kids?” shouted the man, who was later arrested and identified as Patrick Chambers.

Chambers, 46, from the Bronx, then stabbed the victim in the stomach and the chest in what police say was an unprovoked attack.

A 73-year-old man tried to intervene and stop the attack but Chambers stabbed him on the left wrist and upper chest, police said.

Chambers was arrested by police after the train pulled into the 52nd St. station. He has been charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

The two victims were transferred by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital with non-life-threatening wounds, according to police.

Welcome to Deblasio city. Criminals and mentally unstable people have more freedom than hardworking New Yorkers.


Bail Reform, early release of inmates, and disband of more than 600 plain clothes anti – crime task force cops are threats to public safety. Mental health is very much needed.

Who called the police?? Why was he arrested? Why didn’t the community and spiritual leaders address this incident? Maybe AOC will hire him and give him a second chance at life

Pat Macnamaracist it says in the artickle

AOC wasn’t mentioned a single time. Senior moment?

Boomer response to every article about crime

It’s because of [any recent reform at all]!!!


How is a lunatic like this allowed to roam the streets? He should be institutionalized.


How come you only mention the color of the parties when a white person was the assailant?


Is he out on bail yet? Cuomo, DeBlasio and Little Jimmy seem to love criminals over citizens. Yes, welcome back to the good old days when these assaults become routine.

Not everyone has a wife or kids!

But why was Bronxonian in Queens, one could ask? Why is HE not at home with HIS wife and kids???


I feel doubly sorry since they were taken to the warzone hospital in Queens

All Lives Matter

Wait till the police are defunded. This will be happening 10 times a day.

Thank you debozo, Cuomo and AOC.


Don’t forget JVB, looks like he has joined the pro criminals anti cops mob.
Defund the cops he says, knuckle head.


Know your laws, you can male a citizen arrest. I was there to witness it and moved passengers out of the train and assisted with detaining the EDP along with the conductor and another security guard.

Thank you for your intervention. Must have been a scary scene.

The attacker is emotionally disturbed, yes. But he needs to be off the streets and the trains.
